Engineered Products Co. (EPCO), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors, recently announced that it shipped 11 pallets of its Contractor Grade Temporary CordLights to provide lighting for reconstruction efforts in areas hit by Hurricane Sandy. Valued at more than $40,000, the donated product was sent to the Salvation Army for distribution where needed most along the East Coast.  EPCO President Jack Schuster said, “The images of such vast destruction and those devastated by the loss of their homes and businesses are unfathomable. Looking ahead, we saw an opportunity to support contractors as they rebuild and repair damages caused by this landmark storm.”

Constructed from heavy-duty 14/2 flat cord, the lights are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Weather-resistant lamp sockets feature rigid-mounted eyelets for hooks or wire to expedite and simplify hanging.
